I need some sort of windows applicaiton to audit a set of folders of my choice, to identify duplicates, produce a list of the duplicates that can be exported to a CSV file, and then delete all copies except one of those duplicates, i.e. keep the first it found and delete the rest.

When I see something like this, I always go to AutoIt. Great scripting tool that should provide everything you need.

Clonespy can do this. You'd have to run the scan twice, once to generate a results file, a second time to do automatic deletion.

The results file isn't a CSV, but a text file with fixed width delimiters, so it can still be imported into Excel. If need be, you could import it into Excel, then export it as a CSV.

Clonespy is freeware and can be downloaded here:
